About this item

A rare and stunning example of Simplex Mid century legal library bookcases.

This is full size barrister bookcase comprising of 6 modular stackable blocks. Simplex bookcases are build with a simple modular stacking system made of six separate wooden units that stack on top of each other. Each unit has a sliding glass panel that runs on tracks. The glass is easy to take out if you prefer an open shelf and the modular system means you can adapt the bookcase to any room size. The bottom module has wooden sliding doors.

The bookcase comes in medium oak. This is a vintage item it does have a small nicks and some slight holes to the right side. These small signs of age do not detract from what is an exceptional example of mid century minimalist and functional design.

The modular system means this can be adapted in size to fit differing ceiling heights but do check your room height if you want to use all 6 modules at it is very high!
